Oil rig converted into a theme park

Rollercoasters arrive at an offshore oil platform in the Arabian Gulf: the site in Saudi Arabia will be home to a new amusement park.

Three hotels, several restaurants—one offering ‘undersea’ dining—and a whole range of extreme attractions and watersports are planned for the 150,000 sqm oil rig, which visitors will presumably reach via sea or helicopter. The theme park, called The Rig, is the brainchild of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, which claims it is the first offshore resort of its kind in the world. It is reportedly an attempt to help the country to diversify and move away from its dependence on oil.
